A quick post today, for a bright, juicy salad that is also quick to prepare.

juicy juicy

It’s nothing fancy, but it was just what today needed: the ripest, juiciest, summeriest tomatoes, a few dollops of crème fraîche or sour cream, a generous dousing of dill, and a little salt and pepper. Perfect for a quick snack or lunch, and bright for a dreary day.


Tomato with dill and crème fraîche
inspired by all the tomato, cucumber, and dill salads I ate in Lithuania and Russia

For one serving:

  • 2 – 3 small tomatoes, or 1 larger tomato, sliced
  • a few spoonfuls of crème fraîche (try making your own!) or sour cream
  • a big handful of dill (or to taste), chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Eat, and be content. Of course, bread (preferably black) would be nice to sop up all the juicy remains in the bowl.

    We have blessed with ‘tons’ of tomatoes — that sounds wonderful!
